Podcast Detroit, a metro Detroit-based podcasting network with nearly 100 shows, has opened another Detroit studio, located in the new Detroit Shipping Company. With this Cass Corridor-area studio, Podcast Detroit now has three locations and six studios in metro Detroit capable of supporting podcasts from a solo host to a host with seven guests.
In addition to the Detroit Shipping Company studio, Podcast Detroit has studios in the Detroit School of Digital Technology (formerly the 3rd District Police Academy) and in Royal Oak. The Detroit Shipping Company is a 12,000-square-foot entertainment venue, restaurant collective, beer garden, artist, and retail space created with 21 shipping containers.
“As a response to the interest from companies throughout the city searching for convenient
daytime access to studio space for corporate communications, Detroit Shipping Company seemed the perfect fit for our newest location,” said Dave Phillips, partner in Podcast Detroit. Phillips and his partner Bob Waltenspiel launched their business venture in Detroit in 2013 with one podcast, IT in the D. By 2015, Podcast Detroit, LLC was formed to host the increasing lineup of podcasts in a variety of categories including business, geek life and technology, interviews, lifestyle and events, music, paranormal, self-improvement, sports, talk shows, and true crime. Today the stable of Podcast Detroit shows is heard approximately 4.5 million times a month by listeners, according to Blubrry, SoundCloud, and Midroll.
